Currently using the dump script with some Amiga games I'm contributing but want to know if that can be modified to dump PC HD/DD disks? The manual gives an example of dumping PC disks using the -z2 -i4 options but what are the correct settings that should be in the dump script? Also, do you want 200+ dumps of PC disks
Oh, yes, I do have a Kryoflux
Generally speaking, PC games would use FM or MFM formats, 40 or 80 (or 77...) tracks and any number of sectors
So the correct command really depends on the disk in practice, but knowing the year the game was published can help a lot.
...and yes, of course PC is just as interesting as any other platform.
Would be a good idea to make test dumps and see how they go.
dtc -fstream -i0 -i2 -v300 -d0
Does that look OK for 720k DD and 1.44MB HD PC disks? I did see -z2 -i4 as well but don't think that's a requirement dumping is it?
As for year, I think around early 90's.
dtc -fdumpname -i0 -i2 -d0 -fdump.img -z2 -i4
This dumps and converts to IMG so any errors should be detected!
Ammended the dumpscript to insert: -f"%DTC_GameTitle%.img" -z2 -i4 and did a test dump which highlighted problems with putting quote " marks in the fields i.e. Media Type: 3.5" Floppy, this causes that field to be omitted from the created .TXT file.
Uploaded 2 Test Dumps: Trivial Pursuit (1.44mb) and Chuck Yeagers Air Combat Disk 1 (720k) into /KRYOFLUX_TESTDUMPS/BarryB
I also have two copy protected games on HD Floppy, TFX (Ocean) and Lemmings 2 (Psygnosis) that do give sector errors on Track 0 so didn't dump them, better to get normal DOS floppies dumping correctly first!!
